Monika began her career at Deloitte in 1998, serving cross border clients and projects in Financial Services as well as a range of other industries. As a licensed auditor in Estonia, her work comprised the execution of IFRS and statutory audits as well another assurance and consulting engagements, leading the field teams through the process with the aim of outstanding customer satisfaction, technical accuracy and compliance.
Her additional experience in team leadership and process management has been gained through numerous one-off projects. She has managed a software content development team in Deloitte Global in New York, led the ECB SSM AQR II project in Estonia with a multinational expert group, taken a lead translator's and facilitator's role with the Ministry of Finance when Estonia adopted IFRSs and ISAs, and most rewarding, has been an ambassador in the Deloitte Leadership Development Program; supporting young talented professionals in their career upward. These projects have developed her ability to manage multicultural and cross-functional processes.
After Deloitte, Monika joined Luminor Bank AS (Estonia) as Head of Group Finance, and Member of the Management Board. The position involved a very ambitious plan to restructure the finance function in the process of cross-border merger, both functionally and in terms of its human capital. This also included business process improvement projects with the intention of moving current processes to more agile and digitalized ways of working in order to deploy human talent as effectively as possible.
